della semplicità

by Maria Massarella

repeat with me

s - p - l - e - n - d - i - d

it is what you are
in all possible ways
from sunrise
to sunset

h a r m o n y

now i am home enslaved
to a song my fingers
can type
no more

i  n e e d

no I  w - a - n - t  
to dance you over
and over

sh h h h (dance!)

oh beautiful day
simple day I
wear your

 b r e a t h

dancing this day with you... such harmony of need and breath.

each and every one of these stanzas, Maria, is pure enchantment and tranquility, as swans that garland lakes, in which we poke our fingers to see we are awake and to sip of each of these tranquil stanzas is not to disturb the swans inherent therein, but is good tonic for the soul.
